Well it's happening. My wildlife photography attracted the attention of the local arts community and I was invited to display my work in the "Boardroom Gallery" here in town for the month of December.

Wow! I'm pretty nervous about it. Never had my work on display like this before. I hope it all turns out well. I've got 13 of what I consider my best wildlife photos on display.

Hey, I think I recognize that bear! Congratulations, Guy. That is great. What a great honour, and well-deserved.

Guy, enjoy this. My dads sister has been doing art shows her whole life.
She’s had phases, oil painting, then got allergic to the oils, water colors, got bored with it, photography, and lately acrylics.

When she did the photography, it looked like yours. She’d specifically make sure was in the field when the babies were young, hilarious baby raccoon pictures etc. of course scenery ala channeling AnselmAdams.

All this to say, she made a pretty Penny decorating doctor and law offices in themes after art shows. Have an open mind and keep it fun.

Worse case, you’ll meet cool people.

You got this.

Good for you Guy! Thank you for sharing your opportunities and skill with the camera with others. For some of us, that's as close as we will get. CL

Thanks guys - this is all new to me.

The leaping whitetail made the cut:

As did this moose photo:

I think you guys have seen most of the ones I posted. Still thinking about adding one 16x20 canvas print of an osprey... It's pretty cool.

Gotta' say, they're all pretty impressive. They reveal your ability to capture the essence of the animals represented.

I’d think some of your sheep pictures should make the cut as well.

You are good at getting into the right place to get right pictures!

Must be that ambush hunter gene.

Any pictures from the Brooks range make the cut?

Can you post a Video tour of the display when it’s open?

You could always upload to Yourube and put the link or search words hear. I’m sure a lot of members would love to see it!

Can you tell us about your camera gear or is it a trade secret?

It's a pretty simple setup. Olympus OM-D with a 75-300 Zuiko lens.

I like it. Reasonably compact, so it tags along with me most of the time.

Regards, Guy

Nice. You’re right, and it’s kinda like binoculars. The best and most complex does no good when it’s sitting home.

The show went well yesterday and my photos will remain on display in the gallery through the end of the month.

I spent four hours there, had quite a few visitors. Sold five, including a real nice 24x24 canvas print.

Got more orders later, one just this morning. Bighorn sheep, moose and eagles were the most popular.

The gallery is dealing with Covid by limiting numbers of people to five at a time, and of course everyone is wearing masks. They also put together a little ten-minute video instead of having their big "First Friday Art Walk" event. Everything has been successful so far, and I'm a happy man. It was fun talking about the animals, the photos.

I kinda left out that I was actually on a hunting trip when I took a lot of the photos... :wink:

No need to confuse the uninitiated with details. (y)

Yes, it's still going. My exhibit is for the month of December, so it's almost time for me to take my prints down. Several of them are going to different homes here in the area.

Our best known local painter bought one of the ram photos - I think she's going to use it to create a painting! Looking forward to seeing that, she's quite talented.

I'm donating 10% of my gross sales to the art foundation where my work is displayed, and 10% to a local conservation group that has done wonderful things here.

Excellent gesture!

My aunt is about to launch a art web site. If I think it might be interesting, I’ll post it in off topic.

I loved when she went through a phase of doing cartoons about her second husband(while they were married, she stopped before the marriage failed.. they were so funny... wonder if she has them somewhere?). Rudy was a bank VP, and drove a VW station wagon and smoked cigars while fly fishing the Boardman River...she has always been a nut). Lots of good material...
